Synopsis: In taking samples of Hyach DNA, Dr. Franklin learns that their race destroyed a different race which used to share their planet. As a result, the Hyach are now dying because they needed to be interbred with the Hyach-Do for their species to survive. Lyta and Byron become intimate, and during their love-making Byron sees visions of how the Vorlons modified and used her. This angers him, and renews his interest in finding a homeworld for his people.

Notable Quotes

Lyta: Byron, the Vorlons changed me, more than you can possibly know. I don’t what I’ll do once you get passed my barriers and I get past yours. It could burn you.
Byron: Then let it burn.

Byron: It was the Vorlons.
Lyta: Yes.
Byron: They created telepaths on a hundred worlds. Interfered with our generic development. Took people from their homeworlds and adjusted them over course of the centuries.
Lyta: Yes.
Byron: Because they needed telepaths in their war against the Shadows.
